Zaphir Chimes are hand made in France out of organic and green approved materials. The tubes are made of recycled cardboard, which is protected by a layer of varnish inside and out.
The Zaphir Chime Company began as Shanti Design. The creators of the chimes started working on chimes in 1992 and continue to have a strong focus on developing new sustainable materials and different tunings so as to create fresh sounding chimes. The craftspeople of these chimes play an integral role in their creation as each chime is tuned by hand, to ensure they all have a rich sound as a wonderful tool used for relaxation, yoga, meditation and other forms of therapy.
The dimensions and tuning of Zaphir Chimes coincide with the natural principles related to the Golden Ratio of Leonardo Da Vinci and ensure an optimal sound and resonance.

CRYSTALIDE G A B D A G B D - Spring
